Happy news indeed

A few days ago, the New York Times decided to get rid of TimesSelect, making all of its current content free. (And archives back to 1987 are free, too.) This delights me for many of reasons, not the least of which is I can once again read Paul Krugman’s op-ed column, which had been a for-fee item under TimesSelect.

And now, I just found out (thanks, Jan) that Krugman has a blog.

My cup runneth over…

    Yep. We missed Krugman and Kristof for a long time.

    I’m so glad they’re back for the Common Man.

    Yahoo for righteous indignation!

    Right there with you! I’m looking forward to reading Frank Rich again too.

    It is so funny you would mention that . . . my dad e-mailed me about the happy news and I got so excited that Maureen Dowd would be back in my world :) I hope the Times (and the WSJ for that matter) can manage to stay afloat and reasonably independent in this increasingly internet-only, overly-consolidated world!
